    Will you be offering reasons for/against Reductive Materialism and Integrationism as well? I would be very interested in hearing that. Great series so far.

    Hi Ellis:
    The way I presented it is to take the arguments for D as also counting as arguments against RM and I, and vice versa. So while there is lots more that could be said and developed, I won’t be doing more on this topic in this series. My goal here is to get enough material out so as to be able to make the connections to education.
    Good question, though. Thanks.
